Killing Them Softly (9/10)
From the moment it started I knew this was my kind of film. The direction, cast, acting, editing, cinematography and the dialogue are all top notch. Not too sure how general audiences will take it, evident from my girlriend who found it too talky and all the negative comments I heard around me as the credits rolled. However most film buffs, I believe will love it. Mendhelson is a stand out but all the cast deliver. Not as good as Assasination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford, but still great, none the less. Dark, violent, gritty and smart but at times laugh out loud funny.
